Thanksgiving Dinner at home is nice but spending this Thanksgiving at Cheryl's Global Soul on Underhill Street in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn was a treat too.
It's a tiny place and Cheryl does most of the cooking but has time to meet every guest as well.
We liked the food well enough to eat there twice and both dinners were outstanding. Thanksgiving Dinner was three courses for $35 and the second course had three sides with it. A pumpkin soup was just spicy enough, a pear salad scrumptious. The requisite turkey (Megan had salmon) was tender and plentiful if you wanted to take some home. The potatoes had enough lumps to attest to their Yukon gold goodness and the finale was either an elegant sweet potato pie or blueberry cobbler. A warm and wonderful place if you visit the Brooklyn museum. Or the Botanical Gardens or the library, you're right across the street.
The regular menu is elegant food, well-presented, with a bit of soul, and reasonably priced.
